First of all I a very happy using FreeBSD and I have a question regarding Locking of files over NFS.
Here is my configuration:
I have an apache server running with FreeBSD 4.8 Stable (server 1)
I have a NFS server where I put all my website files running FreeBSD 4.8 Stable. (server 2)
Both server are linked using Ethernet cards.
rpc.lockd is not activated: neither on server 1 nor on server 2
On server 1, I have concurrent CGI processes accessing files on server 2 using the locking api:
to lock part of the accessed files.
Question: Despite lockd is missing, does this invokation works well i.e do we have the expected locking behavior ?
Thanks and best regards.
